The Woodbridge Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion and the Woodbridge Town Library present:

A Conversation on Disability: What Should We Know and What Can We Do? Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at 7 pm

Results from the "Experiencing Woodbridge Survey" show that 33% of responding households have at least one member who is a person with disabilities. Join us for a community conversation about disability, ableism, and allyship with special guest Tim Kellogg.

Tim Kellogg volunteered to join the Conversation on Disability Awareness because living with Cerebral Palsy (or CP for short) has had a first-hand impact on his life and career, and for as long as he remembers he has had to “be [his] own advocate.” In sharing his personal and professional perspective on living with a disability, he hopes to offer one lens into a much bigger conversation and provide an opportunity for open dialogue. His CP journey includes challenges such as, surgeries, social stigmatism, adverse childhood experiences, perfectionism, self-silencing, environmental obstacles, systemic inadequacies, parenthood, success, and self-advocacy.

Please register. Also please let us know if you need any accommodations. This event will be live-streamed on the Town of Woodbridge's YouTube channel, as well as recorded for later viewing.

Bookings are closed for this event.
